4.57 Average Rating
thomas aquinas is a beautiful place, full of a love for knowledge and critical thought. it has a variety of fun and enhancing extracurricular activities that range from hiking to drama and more. the class environment is unique from most other schools, consisting of discussions based on the socratic method, rather than lectures.
